On 13 June 2019, a TARN event entitled “Science, Transparency and Independence. The Revised Rules on EU Risk Assessment on Food and EFSA” will take place in Brussels. This expert workshop will bring together academics and representatives of EU institutions and agencies to discuss the main innovations of the reform of the General Food Law regulation, including the implications for the institutional setting and the functioning of the EFSA. Particular attention will be paid to the implications for the independence and transparency of this agency and of the scientific studies on which its decisions are based. This event is chaired by Ellen Vos and Annalisa Volpato from Maastricht University.
